The Internet Companion

The Internet Companion

The Internet Companion has been a leading beginner’s title since its original publication date in 1992. It has succeeded because it is nontechnical, easy-to-understand, and enlivened by anecdotes, while containing all the solid information one needs to know to begin an Internet journey.


The Internet Companion was the first computer trade book to introduce the world to the wonders of the Internet. When it made its debut in 1992, it immediately became a best-seller. Even though today there are other sources of information about the Internet, including training classes and videotapes, new users still look to the Companion for guidance and help in getting to know and use this “network of networks.”
